Jepson Field Book volume 26 page 194
San Leandro. 15 Feb. 1913. ---------- - Dr. Goodspeed showed me yesterday a single flower stalk of Fritillaria liliacea! said to have come from San Leandro. Went to San L. today and scoured the hilltops east of the town for two hours but found no Fritillary altho' I looked in the most likely places. [San Leandro! verified, O.K.!!] ---------- No. 5299. Eschscholzia californica. Hilltop plants, the stems mostly scapose and leafless, 1-flowered, after the fashion of early dwarf plants. Deep golden color. -- San Leandro. ---------- - Cupressus pygmaea Sarg. Material from Ft. Bragg, Feb. 9, 1913, collected under my direction by Miss Lula M. Estee.

Some have black seeds, some light brown seeds just as in the little dwarf grove at Monterey which is the original of C. goveniana. The branchlets are also noticeably square (in x-sect), as in the Monterey also. ---------- - California Academy of Sciences. Its early members were a fine lot I think. The Proceedings show their taste and quality. The pages contain no puerilities or cheap jokes such as one finds in the Bulletin of the S. Cal. Acad. Sci. The latter contains pictures, fairly good ones, of S. Cal. scenes but illustrating no article! Just run in.

Cont. p. 198.
